February Fun!

Well it's that time again. The first Wednesday of the month is tomorrow! So happy I'm ready for the February class already. I have been busy making kits and sometimes I just get carried away! I have so many kits made up I don't know if I should Choose the 4 cards they make or let them grab a bucket. ... ????
The only problem with not choosing at least THREE of them, is I might get stuck with a lot of Valentine kits..... ya know?
Anyway... let me share what I have prepared and then I'll wait for your input. Okay? (Nancy?).
This first one I chose for a friend of mine who likes to send "TEA" theme cards to her Great Aunt.  Below is a close up of the little velum envelope which is stamped with the SU "Sealed with Love" set as well as the sentiments on top.  This card also uses two strips of the SU "Sending Love" Valentine DSP pack, which is layered under the SU "Falling Petals" embossed piece. Not sure why they named it petals.. because it's clearly HEARTS! But I love this folder.

Next up is random card I made for my beau! This is not part of the class but I like how it turned out.
Here's a peek inside, again using the same stamp set.
Here is a close up of the edge die in the from the "Love Notes" bundle.
Love this die.
I also have a super cute card kit using the SAB "Hey Chick" set.... however
I forgot to take a photo of it!
Executive Decision Time.......
I believe I should stick with a Valentine theme for at least 3 .... so this would be the first card in this post along the 2 others from the last post.  They can do one other non Valentine  which will be the "Hey Chick" card ... and that will be my February class.
Below is the table favors using more of the DSP from the 6 x 6 pack.
Each is a little different.
I used up some old Hugs & Kisses ribbon to close.

Each little treat holds 2 Hershey Nuggets.

So there you have it!

Happy Valentine's Day!!!

My Funny Valentine

💝💚💚💘💘💘💘💘💘💘💘Hi there .... It's almost time to be sending out those heart throb cards and notes to our Valentines! 
 I really am hoping to make about 50 small treats for work; something simple like a tag,
 but in the meantime I had to have a few kit ideas ready for the February class.
So with that said.... here is just a few. 
This is a sample of the "funny" version.
The cards are identical except for the veggies.
Did you notice I added a toothpick on this Olive?

There are several Vegetables the girls can choose from in this set.

Below is another more traditional Valentine with two different inside sentiments.

The die-cut cover frame plate does all the work on this one.
I added a strip of DSP under the sentiment on the W.W. CS piece. 
Then I finished off with a baker's twine bow glued to the lower front center
of the sentiment strip. 
 I also glued on a few of the heart inserts from the die cut frame.

Happy New Year! January Class

Well Happy New Year to everyone who may read this! (Hi Nancy!)....
Here is a quick look at the cards the girls will make for the January class Wednesday night, plus the table favors for class participants.  I chose Valentine's for my favor theme.
This first card is one of my favorites.
One card is done in bright colors and the second a tone on tone.
The girls can pick which ever they like best, plus I have TONS of DSP to choose from.
The second is the same as far as choices. On has vertical stripes and one has diagonal stripes.
They can also make which ever sentiment they want.
The third can be used for many occasion depending on the sentiment stamp used.
Also the die cuts can be many different colors... I like the swish added to show movement.
The fourth card can be a Wedding, Anniversary easily if the baby swan is left off. With the baby it makes a great Baby Shower card.  Again you can make the swans, light pink, beige, or plain white. All look fabulous in my opinion.
Last is two of the 8 different Valentine favors.

Thanks for stopping by and please let me know what you think.
